Hey Doug,

One of the driving ideas motivating the creation of sXBL was precisely 
so that the great and wonderful community could create its own 
extensions to SVG without having to go through the WG, and without the 
implementors complaining that the spec is getting huge and out of hand.

Interestingly enough one of the first sXBL examples (back when it was 
called RAX or RCC) that Adobe showcased was precisely a start element.

Is there any reason why sXBL couldn't be used here? You'll get it before 
you get SVG 1.3 :)
